Buying a home or condo in Calgary will likely be one of the largest financial decisions you’ll make in your lifetime. Whether you’re a first-time buyer or have been through the process multiple times over, you’ll want to treat the process with all the due diligence it deserves and make sure that the decision to buy is truly in your best interests.
Buying real estate should be fun and exciting and involve a low stress process. As a buyer, you typically will not pay any commission to a Realtor for their services, so do yourself a favour and hire an expert real estate agent who will help guide you through the process from start to finish while taking care of all your needs.
Before Deciding to Buy a Home or Condo…
#1 – Evaluate ‘why’ you want to buy real estate at this moment. Sit down with trusted family and friends and evaluate your real estate goals.
#2 – If the answer is ‘yes’ to make a move in the real estate market, get pre-approved for a mortgage. This will give you an idea as to what price range you can afford given your current financials.
#3 – If you’re unsure, contact an experienced real estate agent to discuss your real estate goals. Sometimes an expert opinion can make all the difference in the world.
